I bought the Canon 60d a few months ago and have not regretted it at all.I had my reasons, I prefer Canon over Nikon,I wanted a swivel lcd as I have a bad back and I already had a few lens which fit the 60d.
At the end of the day it will come down to what feels the best in your hand but also suite your needs.Keep in mind,if you feel comfortable with your camera you will use it more.
I suggest you go back to the shop and get a feel for the camera choices you mentioned,pick the most comfortable for you and then talk to the staff in relation to the features of the camera.
Best of luck!

With the 60D you also have excellent movie capability.Smile I've had the Canon 600D for a couple of months and I really enjoy it.

The great Nikon/Canon debate will run and run. When I got my first DSLR it had always been my ambition for over 20 years to have a Nikon. Over 10 years on I am more than happy I did. Started with the D70, moved onto the D80 (excellent camera which my husband now uses and loves) and now the D300s. Cannot comment on the D90 as I have not used it but would suggest it should be equally as good as the D80 or better. I have never needed the movie mode but this I believe is available on the D90.
